Looks like Love Island star Jake Cornish is heading to Hollywood after landing a major film role.

The 25-year-old appeared on series seven of the annual dating show but quit the series alongside ex-girlfriend Liberty Poole.

Jake has stayed out of the spotlight following his villa exit, but recently announced he’ll be starring in the upcoming film Mr Hyde: The Untold Story.

‘Meet DI Jacobs,’ he wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of himself in character.

‘Over the moon to announce that I am playing such a big role in the new @mrhyde_2022 untold story film.’

He added: ‘Who knows ? New change of career. I’ve always wanted to be involved in films and here we are. An actor I can’t wait to get started on filming.’

Winter 2023 star Olivia Hawkins recently shared that she’ll appear in the next instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise, Fast X.

I did a scene in the new Fast and Furious,’ she told former islander Toby Aromolaran on his Fancy A Chat? Podcast.

Toby asked: ‘Fast and Furious 10?!’

‘Yeah. In the party scene,’ Olivia confirmed. I don’t know when it’s coming out.’

She also explained that she shot scenes in London, not Rio De Janeiro, where filming for Fast X also took place.

Elsewhere, Love Island 2022 star Tasha Ghouri revealed that she came pretty close to starring in the highly-anticipated Barbie flick alongside Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling.

She tweeted: ‘Fun fact I got to the final round of the Barbie film audition as a dancer but didn’t get the job – filming was at same time as LI [Love Island], crazy how the universe works.’

Love Island is available to stream on ITVX.
